Feedback Widget for Next.js

Create a Feedback Widget for your Next.js site with two steps. See the demo

1. Frontend

Install @upstash/feedback:

npm install @upstash/feedback

Import css and component:

// pages/_app.js

import '@upstash/feedback/dist/style.css'
import FeedbackWidget from '@upstash/feedback'

export default function MyApp({ Component, pageProps }) {
  return (
      <FeedbackWidget type="full" />
      <Component {...pageProps} />

The options can be passed as React props

key type default accept
user? string
metadata? object null
type? string “form” ‘form’, ‘rate’, ‘full’
apiPath? string ‘api/feedback’
themeColor? string ‘#5f6c72’
textColor? string ‘#ffffff’
title string, React.ReactElement
description string, React.ReactElement
showOnInitial? boolean false
children? React.ReactElement

2. Backend

The data will be kept at Upstash Redis. Create a free Redis database at Upstash Console

Install @upstash/redis:

npm install @upstash/redis

Create API:

// pages/api/feedback.js

import upstash from '@upstash/redis'


export default async function FeedbackWidgetAPI(req, res) {
  try {
    const { error } = await redis.hset('feedback',, req.body)
    if (error) throw error

    return res.status(200).json({ message: 'success' })
  } catch (err) {
    return res.status(400).json({ message: err })

UPSTASH_REDIS_REST_URL and UPSTASH_REDIS_REST_TOKEN can be found at the database details page in Upstash Console.

Data Administration

The submitted forms can be managed on Upstash Console Integrations page.

Submitting the User Id

If you already have an id (or email) for the current user, you can pass it to the component as a parameter, so the feedback will be stored together with the user’s id.

<FeedbackWidget type="full" user={}/>

Also, you can set a user id just to hide email input, so the form can be submitted anonymously.

<FeedbackWidget type="full" user="anything"/>
